Angular – Step 15: Deployment and Hosting


Deployment and hosting are important aspects of any web application, including those built using Angular. In this step, we’ll discuss how to deploy and host an Angular application, including some popular hosting options.

Tabular Comparison

Here’s a comparison table that shows the differences between some popular hosting options for Angular applications:

Hosting OptionProsCons
Firebase HostingFree, easy to use, supports custom domains, integrates well with other Firebase servicesLimited storage and bandwidth for free plan, requires Firebase account
GitHub PagesFree, easy to use, supports custom domains, integrates well with GitHub repositoriesLimited to static websites, requires GitHub account
HerokuSupports dynamic and static websites, easy to use, integrates well with Git, supports custom domainsLimited free plan, may require additional configuration for Angular applications
AWS Elastic BeanstalkSupports dynamic and static websites, scalable, integrates well with other AWS servicesMay require additional configuration for Angular applications, can be complex to set up

Text Diagram

Here’s a text diagram that shows the deployment and hosting process for an Angular application:

+--------------+       +-----------------+       +-----------------+
| Angular Code |------>| Build and Bundle |------>| Deploy to Server |
+--------------+       +-----------------+       +-----------------+
                                  | Serve Application |

In this diagram, we start with the Angular code, which is then built and bundled into a deployable format. The deployable code is then deployed to a server, where it can be served to users.

Here’s a complete code program that shows how to deploy an Angular application to a generic web server:

  1. Build your Angular application:
    ng build --prod
  2. In the root directory of your Angular application, create a dist directory:
    mkdir dist
  3. Copy the contents of the dist directory that was created by the ng build command into the new dist directory that you just created:
    cp -r dist/<your-app-name>/* dist/
  4. Upload the contents of the dist directory to your web server using your preferred method (e.g. FTP, SCP, etc.).
  5. Configure your web server to serve the contents of the dist directory as the root of your website.

That’s it! Your Angular application is now deployed and hosted on your web server.

Note that this is a very basic deployment process, and there are many additional considerations that may need to be taken into account depending on your specific application and hosting environment. Some examples include:

  • SSL/TLS encryption
  • Server-side caching
  • Load balancing and scaling
  • Reverse proxies
  • Security hardening

Be sure to research and implement best practices for deployment and hosting based on your specific needs and environment.
